    I hurt my back a week ago. I'm hardly able to move or sit, stand or lie down. I've been to the chiro, doctor and physio a couple times. I'm on prescription muscle relaxants and pain meds (which do absolutely nothing). Anyway, the doctor told me not to workout at all until I get better.......which could be weeks for all I know.
    So of course I'm worried about getting fat and losing muscle mass. Can my diet alone save my gains or am I just screwed and will have to start all over once I can workout again?

    if its short term you'll be fine. If its long term say 6-8 weeks you might want to move up to maintenance.

    Have you seen an ART doctor?

    Yes I've have a couple art treatments so far.
    So I can continue to diet until I figure out exactly how long I'll be out for? Is eating at maintenance just a way to preserve muscle mass?
